Table 2 Demographic, clinical and laboratory factors associated with the development of MAP (n = 75)

From: Clinical and laboratory prognosticators of atrophic papulosis (Degos disease): a systematic review

Independent variable Odds ratio 95% CI p value
Female 0.77 0.27 to 2.36 0.361
Comorbid AiCTD 0.084 0.004 to 0.73 0.048
Age < 18 years 0.91 0.23 to 3.7 0.0486
High ANA and/or low C3/C4 2.86 0.59 to 19.0 0.895
Atypical distribution 1.75 0.17 to 43.8 0.223
Elevated ESR and/or CRP 21.3 2.62 to > 100 0.023
  1. Multivariable logistic regression of 75 cases demonstrates that Degos secondary to AiCTD is less frequently associated with development of MAP (OR = 0.08, CI 0.004 to 0.73). Elevations in either of ESR or CRP were associated with MAP (OR = 21.3, CI 2.62 to > 100). There were no associations been MAP and pediatric patients, sex, atypical distribution, or a positive anti-nuclear antibody and/or hypocomplementemia
